How to Get Tousled Waves

The Technique: No need to wrestle with curling wands and risk accidental burns to achieve pretty bends in your hair. This foolproof automatic curler is ideal for beginners. Holding the iron vertically, place a small section of hair on the barrel and press the curl dial. The iron automatically wraps strands around its heated barrel like a ribbon. After 5 to 10 seconds, release and then gently tug at the ends of hair to stretch spirals into cascading waves. Alternate the direction of each curl—toward the face and away—for more natural-looking results. All done? Shake out hair to gently separate strands.
